Property value

ValueMeaning
TASK_COMPATIBILITY_AT

The task is compatible with the AT command.

TASK_COMPATIBILITY_V1
1

The task is compatible with Task Scheduler 1.0.

TASK_COMPATIBILITY_V2
2

The task is compatible with Task Scheduler 2.0.

 

Remarks

Task compatibility, which is set through the Compatibility property, should only be set to TASK_COMPATIBILITY_V1 if a task needs to be accessed or modified from a Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000 computer. Otherwise, it is recommended that Task Scheduler 2.0 compatibility be used because the task will have more features.

Tasks compatible with the AT command can only have one time trigger.

Tasks compatible with Task Scheduler 1.0 can only have a time trigger, a logon trigger, or a boot trigger, and the task can only have an executable action.
